Recipe Tips

Almost ready to start brewing? Here are a few quick tips to help you make the perfect strawberry matcha latte.

Strawberry Puree

For our recipe, we’re making a very simple strawberry puree using fresh strawberries, water, and sugar. There are many other ways to add strawberries to your drink, though! You can buy pre-made strawberry sauce at the store, use frozen strawberries, or try blending strawberries and honey. You can also just add fresh strawberries to the bottom of the glass for a less sweet drink.

Milk

Milk is the middle ingredient in this drink, providing a smooth, neutral backdrop for the intense flavors of matcha and strawberries. You can use almost any kind of milk, like coconut milk, almond milk, cow’s milk, or even oat milk. We recommend using unsweetened milk to avoid ending up with an overly sugary drink.

Matcha

Finally, the key ingredient: matcha! Matcha is an earthy, flavorful powder made from finely ground green tea leaves. The traditional Japanese preparation method involves a special wooden whisk, but you can use any whisk (or even a spoon) to mix matcha and water. If you like your matcha strong, we recommend adding an extra teaspoon of powder to this drink. The milk and sweet strawberry puree will tone down your matcha’s flavor!
